Course Reviews

This course is a very challenging track, especially when the wind is strong. Many changes in elevation that have you choosing your shots carefully. It has been cleaned up recently and the environmental areas are much more open now but this is a course the eats golf balls. Lots of fun to play and makes you think your way around the course. Best to play the blind holes with a friend to spot for you. It is an excellent value and has a discount for Peabody residents. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The course is always in excellent shape with very nice greens. On the front 9 holes 4, 5 and 8 are very challenging with large elevation changes, especially when played from the blue tees. A fun course that rewards the straight shooter and a course that you have to play a number of times to get to know.

this is the course i play the most but the first time reviewing it. Like i tell everyone, you either love it or hate it after youre first time playing it. its target golf. definately need local knowledge when you play it for the first time. its also a must ride course. the layout has variety tho. no 2 holes are alike. the prices are the best around and the maintenance only makes the price better. the course is always in fantastic shape. greens are always fast, rough is always well, rough. you definately have to know your yardages playing here. good luck not losing any balls.

Revisited this course after almost two years. Played it better than the first time. Still, extremely hilly. Way too many blind shots, even after you tee off. Pretty course though. Still well maintained for a muni.

Great value, not a course I'd ever want to walk as it has very dramatic elevation changes on some of the holes. Pretty high difficulty for an average to weaker player. Played on a sunday in September 2009 and our foursome was hit into three times by the group behind us on the front 9, never seemed to be a marshall present.

Esthetically this is a very pretty course. Well maintained for a municipal course. It will challenge you and you should give it a play. Long balls hitters will have to keep it straight.

Extremely hilly and just isn’t my cup of tee. If you’re a walker, this is not your course. I prefer more level courses that have been designed to challenge you without the extreme elevation changes that this course has. It seems the designers just followed the course of the land (if I‘m correct, it was a former landfill(dump). Never know it by the looks of it. If you watch golf on TV, you will never see tournaments played on courses like this.

There are many blind tees and on many occasions you won’t see where your ball goes. Don’t play it alone if it’s your first time. You really need to play with someone who is familiar with the course. As much as I don’t care for this type of course, I do want to give it another try.

I recently played this course for the first time and did so from the blue tees (6200 yds and it plays longer than that). My first encounter was with the staff who were very friendly and helpful. My second encounter was with the rough. It's 4-5 inches worth of thick, gnarled nastiness and very difficult to locate a ball in. But I hesitate to place blame for where my ball was not meant to be. There is very little water and only occasional sand traps on the course. But the rough is more than adequate as an ever-present hazard.

The fairways were in very good condition and the greens were outstanding. If I could find anything negative at all to say about the conditioning it would not be in reference to the maintenance crew but to golfers who don't repair ball marks.

The scenery on the course is decent. It’s mostly meadow and woodland with occasional views of some of the northern burbs from the points of elevation. There are also no houses on the course. That always wins additional aesthetic points in my book.

As one who prefers walking to riding, I started my round in typical fashion but was having doubts as I trudged up the hill to #4. I soon found there to be considerable elevation change throughout the course and when I next play, I will likely use a cart as I was dragging by #18 in mid-70s weather. Despite the elevation changes, I thought the line of sights to target areas were fair. When unclear, there were typically yardage markers indicating the distance to landing areas.

In summary, on conditioning and value, I think this course gets the nod in the North Shore area. I was pleasantly surprised with both. I paid $40 for a non-resident green fee. A cart is $15 more if you want one.

One thing the course is in dire need of is drinking water. The starter gave me a bottle as I started (perhaps in sympathy as to what I was about to encounter), but there was no other availability throughout the course.

This is my favorite public course on the North Shore. It is priced fairly for the area. Going as a single can be tough at times, but they do their best to get you out. Maintenance does a great job with the fairways and greens. My only problem is the rough, it is extremely thick. Asthetically pleasing course. The back nine plays more difficult than the front.

Tough course. Cannot hit driver no every hole as obstacles make you choose to lay up or shape your shot. Tough for a public course. Not a lot of water but you have to think before you hit. In pretty good shape when played last year.

If you like to see your target, dont play here. hills and angles block your veiw an 80% of the tees. a few tees on the back 9 have you hit to a hill, if you can drive it, you may never find your ball. Personally I prefer a reward for a shot that I hit my target. Not an easy track the first time arround. I will play it again. a great challenge. oh yea great greens very nice.

Beautiful course - in great condition and is a tough course with a lot of blind shots. Great value and will deinitely play there again.


Good test, great value.

Very good value, some great holes, some very easy holes. All the par 3's are challenging. You'll need to play it a couple of times to know where to hit some tee shots (and where not to hit some). Course will have holes suited for target golfers as well as big hitters.

Great place

The staff was very nice and helpful. This course will test you, a few blind shots here and there. But if you like to test your game this is the place to be. the course was in wonderful shape and if you shot bad you can only blame yourself.


This course is in great shape and lets you use all of your clubs. Straight shots will reward you with low scores. Their are some blind shots that require course knowledge, but once you've played this course, you will be able to master it.
